ROYER, M. D. Role of EPA in Asset Management Research – The Aging Water Infrastructure Research Program. Presented at WSAA, WERF & Water Research Foundation Condition Assessment Workshop, Sydney, AUSTRALIA, July 22 - 23, 2009.

Description:

This slide presentation provides an overview of the EPA Office of Research and Development’s Aging Water infrastructure Research Program (AWIRP). The research program origins, goals, products, and plans are described. The research program focuses on four areas: condition assessment, system rehabilitation, advanced concepts, and innovative technologies for wastewater and water reuse. The research program supports asset management by providing and evaluating tools to support better decision-making and practices with regard to design, operation, maintenance, and renewal of water infrastructure. Both installed and future water infrastructure are within the scope of the AWIRP. Example projects briefly described include: nutrient control design manual and workshop; sanitary sewer overflow assessment & prevention toolbox; state-of-technology assessment for water & sewer rehabilitation; permeable pavement research and demonstration; and green infrastructure research and demonstrations in Cincinnati, OH, and Kansas City, MO.
